Deb returned from retirement to serve as Editor and Special Projects Administrator in support of TriWest projects. From 1999 to 2015, Deb was TriWest’s business and operations manager, gaining invaluable experience working with TriWest’s founders and partners to establish the company and then enjoying the challenge of helping them grow the enterprise into today’s array of diverse professionals and project portfolios.
Prior to joining TriWest, Deb owned and operated an independent bookstore in Boulder, Colorado; served as a staff associate in the mental health program at the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE); taught composition in the University of Colorado Writing Program; and held marketing and administrative positions at Westview Press in Boulder and at the Workers Defense League and the Ms. Foundation for Women in New York City.
When not working, Deb’s interests focus mainly on Golden State Warriors basketball, San Francisco Giants baseball, reading, crocheting, and delving into the history of her home state of California, particularly the Monterey Peninsula where she lives with Romeo the retired racing Greyhound, Jax the confused Greyhound/Saluki, and their nanny, Lily the Bichon/Maltese.
Deb holds a master’s degree in cultural anthropology.
